Must admit, I'm a little disappointed with their choice. But, it's their choice.

There are so many pretty girls names.

Really thought it would be Elizabeth - would have bet money on it!

How beautiful baby... It was really good for her to become fine. I think that their choice is good. Louise, it is lovely name. I wish her and her family's happiness.

Lady Louise Elizabeth Alice Mary Mountbatten-Windsor!
Does it matter much in which order the names are ?

http://www.cbc.ca/stories/2003/11/26/royalbaby_031126

"....have named their baby daughter Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten-Windsor".

What a hadnfrul, and a hyphenated surname to boot. :flower:

Sort of like "Pick a card, any card?"

Or each morning when the Wessex baby wakes up, she can pick a name according to her mood? Today I feel like a 'Louise' ...; the next day I will feel like an 'Elizabeth' ...

And what a mouthful that will be for Ma and Pa Wessex to holler up the Bagshot Park staircase when daughter Wessex is in trouble! "Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten-Windsor, get yourself down here and explain this to me!"

(And here I thought my parents had it hard with Alexandria Eveline! )

Wessex baby named Louise, but not HRH

CLAIRE SMITH
csmith@scotsman.com


THE EARL and Countess of Wessex have named their baby daughter Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten Windsor.

The latest addition to the Royal Family, born by emergency caesarian section on 8 November will be known as Lady Louise Windsor.

The earl and countess may have chosen well-favoured royal names for their daughter, but they have broken with tradition by including the name Mountbatten.

The parents waited 17 days before officially naming their daughter, who spent a fortnight in a special baby care unit after being born several weeks premature.

The earl and countess, who lost a baby in December 2001, faced an anxious wait before being allowed to bring their daughter home to Bagshot Park in Surrey.

The inclusion of his family name will please Prince Philip, whose wish to include it in Prince Charles’s name was turned down.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said the earl and countess had decided not to style their daughter Her Royal Highness. When Prince Edward married Sophie Rhys-Jones, who worked in PR, at Windsor in 1999, the couple let it be known that they did not wish their children to be known by the title.

The Queen’s third son was given the title the Earl of Wessex on his marriage and it was announced at the time that he would inherit the title of Duke of Edinburgh.

Yesterday, Buckingham Palace confirmed that with the permission of the Queen the new royal baby will be known as Lady Louise, as is traditional for the daughter of an earl.

Although her full surname is Mountbatten Windsor, she will only use Windsor.

Lady Louise is now with her parents at home after a fortnight in hospital.

The baby, due at the beginning of December, was born several weeks premature, after her mother was rushed to Frimley Park NHS Hospital for an emergency Caesarian.

The newborn was transferred to a specialist neo-natal unit at St George’s Hospital, Tooting, south London and was finally allowed to go home last Sunday.

VICTORIA'S LEGACY: CATALOGUE OF NAMES

LOUISE may not sound very regal, but it has been a name favoured by the Royal Family for more than a century.

Queen Victoria named one of her children Louise, and the name has continued to be popular as a third or fourth choice for Royal baby girls.

As the mother of nine children, with four names apiece, Queen Victoria’s brood provides a useful reference for Royal parents looking for inspiration.

And the Earl of Wessex and his wife have followed the family tradition, choosing a long list of solid, Victorian family names for their daughter.

Whereas the Princess Royal broke with tradition to name her daughter Zara, the Duke and Duchess of York gave tradition a new twist by naming their first daughter Beatrice and second Eugenie. Beatrice was the name of Queen Victoria’s fifth daughter, who named her own daughter Eugenie.

The new baby’s names are almost a rearrangement of the name of the Princess Royal - Anne Elizabeth Alice Louise.

By choosing the name Elizabeth, the couple have honoured the Queen and the late Queen Mother.

And Mary, another favoured choice of royalty, also happens to be the name of the mother of the Countess of Wessex - Mary Rhys-Jones.

By including Mountbatten they have pleased the earl’s father, the Duke of Edinburgh, by commemorating his uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten, who was killed by the IRA in 1979, when a bomb exploded on a boat in which he was sailing at his holiday home in County Sligo.

Ironically, Mountbatten was a name concocted by the Battenburg family to avoid sounding German during the First World War, when it was considered important to gain public favour.

The strength of anti-German feeling also led the Royal Family to change its own name, from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha to Windsor.

From The Scotsman

Lady Louise a royal relief


WHAT’S in a name, especially a royal one? Quite a lot, actually.

Prince Edward and his wife, Sophie, have finally decided what to call their baby girl, 17 days after her premature birth. She is to be Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten-Windsor, otherwise shortened to the mellifluous Lady Louise Windsor.

For once, the normally banana-skin-prone Earl and Countess of Wessex have got it about right. After all, they could have taken their cue from celebrities such as Bob Geldof, father of Fifi Trixibelle, Peaches and Pixie; or Frank Zappa, who named his children Dweezil, Moon Unit, Ahmet Emuuka Rodan and Diva.

In fact, it is more often commoners who seek names that stand out in a crowd, though few go as far as Eric Fotherby, of Ripley, who in February 2000 officially christened his new daughter Zaedea "21a" Fotherby, in the hope it will help her achieve pop stardom.

She is the only child in Britain with a number registered as part of her name, which her father says came to him in a dream.

The Oxford Concise Dictionary of First Names also notes parents who have called their offspring Bijou, Gobnat, Beige, Raven, Karma and Zenith.

So, good luck to little Louise. She could so easily have been Lady Kylie.

From The Telegraph -

Lady Louise heralds return for Mountbattens
By Jonathan Petre

Prince Philip's family name of Mountbatten was resurrected yesterday when it became part of the surname of his seventh grandchild.

Buckingham Palace announced that the Earl and Countess of Wessex are to call their newborn daughter Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten-Windsor.


She will, however, be generally known by the more easily remembered title of Lady Louise Windsor, a Palace spokesman added.

The acknowledgement will delight the Prince, who has wanted his descendants to bear his family name or title for more than 50 years.

When his first child Charles, now the Prince of Wales, was born in 1948, Prince Philip was told that the boy could not use his surname.

The Prince reportedly exploded: "It makes me an amoeba, a bloody amoeba."

But the Mountbatten-Windsor name has been granted a comeback because the Earl and Countess have decided that their daughter should not be styled "Her Royal Highness".

Their decision will be seen as a gesture of affection towards the 83-year-old Prince, who is known to be close to them. The Earl is expected to inherit his father's title of Duke of Edinburgh.

Prince Charles, who was devoted to his great uncle, Lord Mountbatten of Burma, who was killed by the IRA in 1979, will also be pleased.

As husband to the Queen, Prince Philip had not only to shed his Greek nationality and become a naturalised Briton, but was made to suffer the indignity of not passing on his name to his children.

He was born Prince Philip of Greece, but his ambitious uncle Lord Mountbatten persuaded him to adopt his mother's Mountbatten surname, anglicised from Battenburg, until he became the Duke of Edinburgh after his marriage to Princess Elizabeth.

The Prince was, however, prevented from passing on the surname after Winston Churchill's Cabinet put pressure on the Queen to continue using Windsor, chosen by George V in 1917 to replace the German name Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, because of the anti-German sentiment at the time.

Although she sympathised with her husband, she agreed in 1952 that she and her descendants "should continue to bear the family name of Windsor".

Prince Philip complained at the time that he was the "only man in the country not allowed to give his name to his children".

Only in 1960 was the Queen allowed to make the concession that those of her descendants not entitled to the HRH style, and not princes or princesses, or female descendants who married, could use the Mountbatten name.

The name chosen yesterday by the Earl and Countess is redolent with royal connections. The couple decided on Louise as their favoured name after Prince Edward's great-grandmother and Queen Victoria's daughter.

Alice is the name of the Earl's paternal grandmother, Prince Philip's mother Princess Alice of Greece.

Elizabeth was chosen in memory of his maternal grandmother, the Queen Mother. Mary is also the Countess's mother's name.

The name Louise first entered the british royal family through Prince Albert. His mother was Louise of Saxe-Gotha Altenburg (1800-1831). Queen Victoria named a daughter in honour of her mother-in-law. Princess Louise later married the Duke of Argyll but had no children.

The name appeared again in the next generation with Edward VII naming his eldest daughter Louise. She married the Duke of Fife and had two daughters the elder of which, Alexandra inherited her fathers title by special remainder.

The other occurence of the name Louise was Prince Phillip's aunt Lady Louise Mountbatten who became Queen of Sweden when she married, as his second wife, HM King Gustaf VI Adolf. There were no children of this marriage.

Somehow it seems that it is not quite fair that "Lady Louise Alice Elizabeth Mary Mountbatten-Windsor" will not be given the same title as her 1st cousins, Princess Beatrice Elizabeth Mary of York and Princess Eugenie Victoria Helena of York. Their father is a brother to Prince Charles and son of Queen Elizabeth II just as Edward is. Won't that seem unfair to Lady Louise someday - that she didn't rate the same as her 1st cousins??? Can't say that it seems fair the Princess Royal's children are left out because their mother is the female line, but I think I understand that better than the difference betw/the titles given Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and Lady Louise.

Would love to hear what the rest of you think.
God bless,
Corabella

The lack of HRH was the decision of Sophie and Edward on the day of their wedding. I think they just want little Louise to lead a relatively normal life without the burden of "HRH"...

Not having the HRH will take off some responsibility and let her lead somewhat of a normal life, but it won't give her any less press attention. She is a Windsor and that is enough to make a story.

Glad to hear of a name (Louise) that is not over used today.

I like that the royal daughters have names that are historical in the family and not overly popular. I wonder if there will be a popularity of Louise amongst anglophiles? Did Zara, Beatrice and Eugenie become more "common" after the Queens granddaughters were born?

Does this make Lady Louise eighth in line of succession?

peace. Zara

Hi!

Yes, it will be interesting to see if the name Louise suddenly becomes more popular.

I don't think the names Beatrice and Eugenie did, but the names William and Harry certainly did (here anyway).
